    Created: 09/03/2023
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance


    The aim of the Social Isolation & Loneliness Fund is to support projects and organisations to facilitate progress towards the priorities of A Connected Scotland (2018) strategy, contribute to the recovery and reduction in societal harm associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, and mitigate the impact of the ongoing cost of living crisis.

    Funded organisations must work towards achieving one or more of these four outcomes:

    1. Understanding increases around social isolation and loneliness and causes/impacts, along with an understanding of what works to reduce it
    2. Social isolation and loneliness are reduced
    3. Harm resulting from the effects of social isolation and loneliness is reduced
    4. The conditions which help to reduce social isolation and loneliness are increasingly widespread

    Eligible activities must take place between 1 August 2023 and 31 July 2026.

    Full details are available in on the Impact Funding Partners website.

    Who can apply

    Open to third sector organisations and community groups. You do not need to be a registered charity, although your constitution/set of rules should make clear that funds will only be spent on purposes established in the constitution and not distributed amongst members.

    There is no income threshold but it is expected that approximately 70% of the funding will be allocated to smaller community organisations (defined as an annual income of below £500,000).

    How to apply

    There is a two-stage application process. Stage one is an expression of interest and if successful, you will be invited to submit a full Stage 2 application. The Expression of Interest form is available via the Impact Funding Partners website.

    When to apply

    The deadline for expressions of interest is 31 March 2023.
